The restaurant on Palm Parkway near Disney World will open at 10:30 a.m. on June 15, the company announced on Thursday.

“Good things come to those who wait, and our Orlando fans couldn’t have been more patient – thank you!” Portillo said in a tweet.

Portillo’s Orlando debut had been delayed several times. The restaurant was originally slated to open in early March, before the company announced that fans would have to wait a little longer for its beef sandwiches.

This is Portillo’s third location. The company also has restaurants in Tampa and Brandon.
